Have I ever mentioned that I am completely and utterly useless in the morning?  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, because mornings just aren’t my forte. When I wake up, it takes me a good long time before I can ever consider being productive. And coffee. I need lots and lots of coffee. Now, add into that equation three little ones who all need me right away in the morning, and it could be disastrous. An important factor of note is the fact that I also need to be fed pretty soon after waking up. I’m not one of those people who can hang out for hours and get around to eating breakfast. I need to be fed, and I need to be fed pretty quickly.

Instagram Week on the WAYWOW Social Media Blast

Banding together is great Karma…

Bloggers are a unique bunch. We are so creative and it’s hard to slow down enough to think about blogging in a logical manner. You may know where you want to end up, or have a dream of what your blog will look like when you succeed. But it’s the getting there that we need to think about.

Sometimes it seems all we do is work on the blog, creating, photographing, writing, editing, visiting other bloggers, social media promoting, linking to blog parties. And it takes so darn long to get ahead. So long. It’s frustrating.

The Less Messy Way to Chop Peppers

A simple method to chop peppers that results in less mess

A few weeks ago, (or maybe it was months ago, I don’t even know), I showed you an easy method for chopping onions. Today, I wanted to share a trick for to chop peppers that keeps the mess all in one place, and off your cutting board and counters.  I don’t even remember where I learned this trick. It might have been from a roommate that we had who was attending culinary school. She spent weeks working on her knife skills, and I spent a fair amount of time watching the way she did things, seeing if I could learn anything that would help me out in the long run.

Grain Free Vanilla Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream Frosting and Candied Bacon

Recently, Dunkin Donuts lost their minds and discontinued my husband’s favorite donut- the maple frosted donut. (Now, I know you’re thinking, donuts, especially the ones from Dunkin Donuts aren’t paleo. You’re absolutely right. They aren’t paleo, at all, but life is much too short to never eat a donut ever again. While we both feel better when eat Paleo, we can get away with an occasional cheat, and an occasional donut falls into that category). So, anyway, when I got the terrible news that they weren’t making any more Maple Frosted Donuts, I was bound and determined to come up with some other maple frosted something treat for him. He is, after all, a really great husband. So, I started thinking. I don’t have a donut pan, and since I didn’t want to try making donuts without one, I crossed donuts off the list right away. So, I settled on cupcakes. Then, I thought that candied bacon would totally take these bad boys over the top.

When we made the switch to Paleo, I was fairly certain that I would not be able to live without my beloved pasta. I honestly thought that I would die. I mean, I used to make fun of people who don’t eat pasta. The very idea was laughable to me. Obviously, I was very wrong. Not only can I live without pasta, but as a result of living without pasta, I’m living much better. It’s crazy, I know.

So, I never thought, in the beginning of this journey that I would ever need a kitchen tool that would help me turn vegetables into pasta. Now, the idea of not having a tool that does that is the crazy idea. 😉 Oh, how the times have changed. Right now, I have a basic tool, nothing fancy, but this is on my wish list-

Paleo Creamy Cilantro Lime Chicken

When we first decided to give Paleo a try, I was worried that there wouldn’t be a variety of foods to eat or that I would get bored with our options. Luckily, that’s not the case. I actually think that we eat a much wider variety of foods, that taste much better now. (Of course, it helps that I had to learn how to cook).

Another of my concerns when going paleo was that cooking everything from scratch was going to be impossible for someone with my lack of cooking skills, and that cooking everything from scratch was going to take forever. Luckily, neither of those concerns turned out to be valid ones. There are tons of recipes out there that work for people who need to refine their cooking skills and plenty of recipes that don’t take forever to make either. This paleo creamy cilantro lime chicken falls into both of those categories. It’s easy to make and can be on the table in slightly more time than it would take to make a frozen pizza. This tastes much better though, and is much healthier. Plus, the entire dish cooks in one skillet, making clean-up easier.
